Hi there, I’m Maserati!
I wasn’t in a very good way when I arrived at Greyhound Rescue, but thankfully I found my way straight to my wonderful foster family – how lucky am I!
Some notes from Maserati’s foster carers
Maserati likes being around people and having company. Favourite part of the day is in the evening sitting with the family. Loves going for a walk/run once a day, but not too far as she is a little lazy! She loves having a play with her toys.
She is pretty good with her walking. She will listen and obey and doesn’t pull on the lead very much apart from the start of the walk when she is a little excited to get going!
She now knows commands such as sit and stay which we use for mealtimes. She has learnt to shake hands for a treat. She is fully toilet trained and has never had an accident inside. She knows where she is/isn’t allowed to go in the house and is pretty good at obeying these rules. We haven’t let her on our lounge but she has had a sneaky sleep on there a couple of times but will get off as soon as she is told.
We think she would do fine in an apartment, but would do best in a house/townhouse with a small backyard as she does enjoy some time outside and we leave her in our backyard when we are at work. With an apartment it would depend on how many hours she would be left alone each day and whether she could have a walk in the morning/afternoon.
Maserati hasn’t met many children but she has interacted with quite a few different adults that have come to our house and she is very friendly, loves to have a play and a cuddle. I would think she could be quite good with kids as she is very placid but we don’t have any to test her with unfortunately. She definitely hasn’t shown any aggression at all in any situation.
Maserati has seen some cats on our walks and they definitely get her attention, I don’t know how she would go having one at home with her.
